Ride: It's All Very 'Lana Meets a ZZ Top Video'

If you've ever wanted to see Lana Del Lushness get a bit frisky on top of a pinball machine, wear an Indian Chief-like headdress and hang off the back of a motorbike zooming down a desert road with a bunch of Hells Angels - then this video is just for you.
The pouty one has unveiled a 10-minute short film to promote the song Ride, which is the first track on her forthcoming Born To Die - Paradise Edition LP, released on November 12th.

Directed by Antony Mandler, the epic promo includes a monologue narrated by Del Rey, which tells us the tale of a performer who lives life on the road with some hairy bikers - I'm thinking the visuals to this were based on what would happen if Lana and ZZ Top were ever to meet. But with shorter beards.

Watch the vid below and listen out for Lana's closing lines, "Who are you? Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies? Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them? I have. I am fucking crazy. But I am free."

You go Lana, you go girl.
